Finish: Crochet Ripple Throw



The story that was the ripple throw is finally over... Sigh... And it's a happy ending.

True, no boy got no girl, no hero rescued no damsel in distress, and no boy got no puppy who saved his life and then died (though I guess that's not really a "happy" ending). No. None of those things happened. The happy ending is just this: there WAS an ending. Just the fact that I finished this project gives me satisfaction. And a sense of accomplishment. And is a little bit magical. I don't know. It just feels good. See, I have issues with long-term crafty commitments. They tend to languish in the corners of my house. And my mind. I know they're there, but I lose interest in them as time passes. I'm more of a get'er done NOW kind of a girl.

But... I did it. Eventually, yes. And I used a lot of scrap yarn in the process. So YAY for me. Woot woot.

Now, here it is in all it's completed glory! Michele's CROCHET RIPPLE THROW!



Can you tell I'm pleased? Well I am! And the universe is pleased too...


Look what it bestowed upon me for all my hard work! Aren't they pretty?



Thank you Universe.

And you, have yourself a beautiful day!

P.S. The throw was made using Lucy's Neat Ripple Pattern available at Attic 24. Thanks Lucy!

  1. Great job. I have an afghan that I started knitting earlier this year, but I'm only about 30% done. I don't have much hope that it will be finished before January, but I can hope.
